Okay, let’s kick it off with Kate and Wills, only because it’s a topic I’d really like to kick to the curb:
Not to crumple anyone’s crumpet or tepid their tea, but am I the only American out there who didn’t give a farthing about ? Okay, maybe it’s because I spent a year of graduate school for theater over there hearing things like “Straighten up! Lord, why do ALL Americans walk like they have no spines!” or “Goodness, are you truly unaware of just how God awful nasal your accents are?!”
Then again, it could be because I pulled an all-nighter last Royal Wedding-palooza under the sincere assumption that Andrew would eventually come a calling to make me a Princess, too. In retrospect I’m sort of happy he never showed…
Moving on to more Maplewood-centric talk:
The terrific is making movie magic – or rather they’re hosting a second chance screening of ‘, an award-winning, searing look at the way we’re raising – and educating – our kids:
"Many Tuscan parents who attended the film’s district premier at Columbia High School in March felt very strongly that we need to keep the Race to Nowhere dialogue going within our community,” explains PTA President-Elect Willis Goodmore. “Tuscan and other parents who could not attend the March event asked our PTA to host a second screening of the film. The May 6th showing at Tuscan presents a convenient opportunity for many more South Orange Maplewood parents, caregivers and educators to experience the film’s powerful message and broaden the dialogue."
When: Friday, May 6 @ 7:30 pm Where: Tuscan Auditorium. Advance tickets are available for $10 online. ($15 @ the door)
